Decent Video available on Youtube posted by Kevin Tobin.
If you are not familiar with 9-12-87, this show has one of the best Dew and Losers you will ever hear, and another great Landover Miller matrix.

The show was good. Not great, but solid.
Not sure what happened after Jerry's coma. Obviously, it was good to see him in better health and not zoning out with his chin down.
At the same time - and I understnad and respect those of you who would disagree - it seems that the shows changed. Less exploratory (I know there are exceptions in 1990 and Fall of '89).
I mean obviously the boys were tentative in 12/86 and the '87 runs. But the band seemed to be a replica of itself in some ways.
I know Road Trips is re-examining Hampton '87 (or '88). But you notice that '81, '82,'83, and '85 were the only years DP's found shows worth releasing out of the first 25 choices?
The shows I would reexamine would be 6/30/87 - 7/8/87. These shows from the summer before are nuggets that I hope many of you check out.
I know this gets of track from this show - but I could not find another place to post this. Guess I will go to 6/30/87 and do the same.
Spacey jam before Scarlet had us all wondering.
Beyond that - good show. But if you look at the rest of the fall tour it's all pretty much the same. Too many shows?? I know that sounds negative but
Subject: Phall Tour
The scene: Beginning of the fall tour. We came down from Roch in the bus - me, Larry, Peter, and some others? At these shows I bought my first drum, and quickly was at any and every drum circle I could find from then on. In fact, High Times did an article on the Dead scene and included a picture of a drum circle from these shows that included me. The hallways in Landover were spacious and always fun. But they only had speakers at certain locations and the venue had these curtains that blocked the sound from coming out into the hallways, so the sound was bad if you weren't by the speakers. During the second set I kept opening the curtain, much to the annoyance of the security (I know, an immature act, but it was fun and people were cheering every time we opened the curtain). I actually wound up getting kicked out of the show during Black Muddy River (luckily). Imagine if I'd done that the next night???? And missed Ripple???? Man, that close call taught me to never do anything like that again!
The music: Bucket and TLEO are fine, but the slide solo in Minglewood is the first real spark on this evening. Great playing on the Let it Grow. Scarlet is unique with some really interesting play between Phil, Jerry, and Brent. But it is short. Nice peak to Fire. Healey does some funky sound effects during the jam of LLR. Interesting and very good Watchtower with Bobby using MIDI at times (still a new feature at this period in time). A fine soaring Stella that peaks with Jerry and Brent intertwining up in the stratosphere. Sugar Mags is pretty strong as well.
Subject: Not their best stuff tonight
2nd Set: 81 seconds of more spacey tuning leads to miss "Begonias." It's only fair because of the lack of full pronounciation and mellow rhythms. "Fire" is more their style tonight...a chill beat they eagerly fill. Not brilliance because it's all so messy...like throwing out a slew of notes and hoping for most of them hit their intended targets. Thankfully, there's no pause before a surprise turn south to "LLR." Bobby's guitar is carelessly clanging lessening my belief in him feeling those doldrums. However, it's an accessible moment for the group inside the Centre to unify and clap together with the band. It sails into a croaky "Terrapin" that manages minor-league power. "Drums" passes into "Space" which after a few minutes of the usual nonsense stresses comforting tones leading to the comforting humane wisdom of "The Wheel." It's serves as a grounding tool before the discordance knwon as "Watchtower." Brent's synths sound like nails on a chalkboard. Wow, Jerry hits some amazing notes late on an otherwise standard "Stella." When Brent joins him in for the fun at 7:50 my head was arching back like a horse stirred to frenzy. naaaaay... :) "Sugar"'s hardened galloping isn't pretty, but does its climactic job.
A delicate, minimalist "Black" ends the show quite poigantly.
2 4/5th stars and I'm feeling like I'm beginning to repeat myself.
